Whisky Reviews for Inchgower 1982 WhB
8 users have left a review for this whisky and scored it an average of 84.63 points
- Much better then the Bladnoch Forum 1982, very very nice
Sherry and chocolade, very refined
Dry, woody, bitterness
medium and creamy
- Starts pretty fruity with pear and white chocolate.
The whisky also tastes quite fruity. Apricot and lychee.
Lots of oak in a good way
- Nose was elegant and light not really in balance with the taste but still a very nice dram
A light and fresh nose of fruits. Pears, green apples, melons and a tiny swift of wood.
Enters with a light sweet and fruity taste, then turning over to growing peppery spices.
Long dominated by pepper and chili finally fading out in a bitter sweet taste of almonds and oak
- For me an a-typical Inchgower. I alway associate Inchgower with industrial (gaz oil) notes, not with sweet fruit. A pleasant surpise.
Tropical fruit, melon and pear. Very sweet. Later some oakiness as well.
Fruit bomb. Juicy passion fruits, apricots, peach and melon with some vanilla. Oily as well. Very light mouthfeel though. Doesn't taste as 53,9% ABV. So dangerous whisky!
Medium long. Some pepper at the end.
- you might have guessed I don't like english turkish delights/rosewater & parma mints much, if you do, this might be something interesting for you.
First of: dusty malting floors, earth, cereals/grainy, dusty chocolate, some lemon, slight fresh peach, (86)
A bit later: musty (malting floor) now, fruitier/sweeter, peach turns quite estery/artificial now, honey, quite buttery & waxy (perfumed paraffin) now, also a few dried berries & some mineral notes (sand & wet pebbles), (84)
very sweet upfront, quite artificial, parma mints/rosewater/turkish delights mix, malt, artificial peach, liquor/syrupy, and a slight bitter note in the back (73)
Later: turkish delights/parma mints turn broader & overshadow most else (68)
nice oilyness, and once the previous notes dissapear (75), honey comes thorugh with a more malt notes, a touch of oak, maybe even some smoke at the very end ? (83)
Later: turkish delights/parma mints creep more and more into the finish as well, also some white chocolate. (77)
Even later: mostly turkish delights & some parma mints now (70)
